Cultivating Resilient Leaders Through Executive Coaching

Watch our webinar

The recent pandemic has certainly been one of the biggest challenges facing a whole generation of leaders.

As they encounter an increased need to respond quickly and effectively to new challenges while continuing to lead their teams, resilience is key to ensure leaders can navigate this ongoing period of crisis whilst learning and not burning out. With improved resilience comes less stress and consequently better performance. But what might help build resilience in one person is not necessarily the same for someone else.

Join this live webinar with Naysan Firoozmand MSc C.Psychol, Head of Global Executive Coaching at Hult Ashridge and Marie-Anne Chidiac, Executive Coach at Hult Ashridge to explore how coaching can help you develop and maintain your own brand of resilience, and overcome ongoing challenges.

This 45-minute live session will explore:

  • Challenges faced by leaders during the pandemic and how these have affected them personally, their teams and organizations with specific reference to the impact on their resilience
  • Different ways to use resilience coaching to navigate through difficult times
  • How to develop leadership skills to be mindful, self-aware, and able to cope with new challenges that arise from crisis to maintain wellbeing and to continue leading your people effectively.
